    Diet soda is fine. Don't take my word. Read the science on examine.com

    thanks!
    so after reading the link, it seems like diet soda is just bad for dental health.
    so in bodybuilding wise (muscle gainz and fat loss) it's all good i guess? but obviously drinking 2L of diet soda every day is gonna be bad i think

    Watch a video on how it's made or google each ingredient. Might change your mind on whether you want to put it in your body.

    Moderation IS key, if you are going to consume them at all.

    Personally, I avoid any of the major commercial diet sodas (sodas in general for that matter). They are just plain junk. I had a soda addiction for years and tried to taper off with diet sodas. I felt worse drinking the diet sodas than I did with the regular. Diet sodas in particular are generally speaking a chemical poop-storm of questionable ingredients.

    Honestly, if you are going to keep your consumption moderate (like less than 12oz a week), it may not matter that much. Even then, though, I would probably just find a regular soda, sweetened with sugar (gasp), and made with as few ingredients as you can find. If you can't pronounce the names of the ingredients without a chemistry background, you probably want to avoid it.

    That's just my way over priced, maybe a little preachy, two cents on the topic. Worth exactly what you paid for it.

    I rarely do but sometimes at a gathering I’ll have a couple cokes or what not instead of alcohol. I think of it as the lesser of two evils.

    Generally diet/fat free/sugar free anything are worse in the long run.

    What does your “diet” drink have as ingredients? More importantly what has your “diet soda” used to replace the sugar?

    I don’t think 1 a day would have much impact on goals but wouldn’t drink more. Seltzer water is my go to if I’m craving something carbonated.

    Interesting as I would choose 2 beers vs two cans of soda, as the lesser of two evils.

    To each their own but I chose a straight edge life to maximize my results. Hard to argue when everyday I’m in the best shape of my life at 35.

    Not sure if they are available where you are but when I get a soda craving I go for these zero calorie “Crush Soda” (as in Orange Crush, Strawberry Crush) water flavoring packets. They taste just like the sodas but without the carbonation and calories. Super good and none of that sweetener taste. Best water enhancer I’ve found.

    Devil's advocate, aspartame is a natural part of an amino acid that is found in massively higher quantities in protein compared to diet soda, no idea about the other stuff though.

    I agree!!! I use the orange crush packets BUT I throw a packet into a bottle of TOPO -CHICO
    mineral water!!! Absolutely the bomb with more carbonation than an actual soda and doesn’t get flat as quick. Try it you’ll love it!
